I stayed in 3 different hostels in Dublin, 7 total in Ireland, and this was by far the best one. Staff was super friendly, the bests were comfy and private, the breakfast was good, and the common areas were great.

The hostel was very clean and the building was really Cool. I have already recommended it to my friends. The room was spacious and the beds were comfortable. The service by staff was as it's supposed to be in a hostel and they were all really Nice.
